DEDICATION 




A Pilgrim by name of Arthur J. King 

In the town of Williamsburg did his thing. 

He came to this village five years ago, 

Then unexpectedly died - but left a glow. 

It's not oft a community and a man do meet' 

With affinity to uplift each other without retreat. 

To look at a problem, then judge it fair, 

To get others to cooperate he had a flair. 

To prepare the budget, or make an unpopular decision 

Shows managerial skills and greater vision. 

This young man had all these and then some more, 

He served the village whenever he took the floor. 

A fund for the beau tif ication of this town 

Is a gift from Mr. King, a lawyer of renown. 

Whatever a man is, whether high or low, 

The work he performs will leave a glow.

incomplete and unsigned, was in his personal papers. 

He and I had often talked of utilizing the sum 
derived from a certain insurance policy to establish

thereby continuing an old and honorable New England 
tradition. In accordance with his desires and those 
of his family, I am hereby carrying out his wishes.

Town of Williamsburg, or by the credit of the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, or any of its political sub-

of the Town of Williamsburg, Massachusetts, including,

the town buildings, the planting of flowers and 
ornamental shrubs, and the maintenance of lawns and 
other ground cover. The income of this trust is not 
to be used in place of or as a substitute for the 
usual funding by taxation and other revenue measures 
for such projects. 

6. ACCOUNTING . The Trustees shall render to the Annual 
Town Meeting an account of their activities for the 
preceding year.

right to alter, amend, revoke, or terminate it, 
except that should the trust fail because it is not

TREASURER'S REPORT 1983 



On June 30, 1983, the cash position of the Town was as 
follows : 

General Cash $643,443.85

Dump Contract 5,000.00 

Total Cash $962,503.45 



As of June 30, 1983, there were the following major non- 
cash assets and liabilities affecting the above fund balances: 

General Cash FY 1983 Real Estate and Personal Prpperty 
taxes not yet assessed $982,599.36 

Unpaid FY 1983 Warrants (paid 7/15)

STATEMENT OF RECEIPTS AND DISBURSEMENTS 



GENERAL CASH 

General Cash 7/1/82 $101,112.31 
Receipts, FY 1983, including 

Investment Redemptions 3,665,301.89

Total Invested 6/30/83 446,328.28 

♦Includes $60,000.00 invested 7/1/83 



Treasurer's earnings included in receipts = $19,156.44. The 
cash position of the Town on June 30, 1983 does not re- 
flect a true picture of the cash position of the Town dur- 
ing FY 1983 for the reason that of the total of $643,443.85 
cash on June 30, approximately all was received that day 
as proceeds of a $630,000.00 borrowing made that day. 



32 



REVENUE SHARING CASH 

Revenue Sharing, 7/1/82 49,114.54 

US Treasury Distributions 39,509.00 

Town Treasurer's Earnings 5,746.61

Town Treasurer's Earnings 5,506.93 

Fire Truck Purchase (25,000.00) 

Stabilization as of 6/30/83 34,156.80 



S EWER PROJECT CASH 

Sewer Project, 7/1/82 and 6/30/83 2,252.09 
Received and disbursed was $62,900.00, representing the 
rollover of the Grant Anticipation Note, because interest 
expense is changed by Federal Regulations to General Cash, 
Treasurer's earnings are included in General Cash. 

DUMP CONTRACT 

Dump Contract account 7/1/82 & 6/30/83 

5,000.00 

There were no receipts or disbursements, because Treasurer's 
earnings on this sum are included in General Cash because 
this sum is being held in liew of a Fidelity & Surety Bond 
relative to the Dump. 

I wish to thank all those people with whom I have had the 
priviledge of working with this past year, including, but not 
limited to, Liddy Smith, Kate Curtin, Joan and Don Baldwin, 
Charlie Kellogg, Carl Satterfield, and Henry Warner. I extend 
special thanks to Bill O'Connor, our Hampshire County Treasurer, 
for his allowing me to process town payrolls upon the County 
computer while absorbing computer costs and personnel costs out 
of the County's, and not the town's budget and to Rhea Sanderson 
for her professionalism for getting the paychecks ready. 



Respectfully, 



Donald D. Williston 
Treasurer

RECONCILIATION OF TREASURER'S CASH 
As required by Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 41, 
Section 50; I have examined the cash book, check books, and 
savings books of the Town Treasurer and compared the figures 
contained therein with those in the general ledger cash ac- 
count. The cash balance on June 30, 1983, was proved by re- 
conciliation of the bank balances with statements furnished 
by the banks of deposit, by inspection of the savings bank 
books and by count of the cash in the office.

BOARD OF SELECTMEN ANNUAL REPORT 1983 



The Board and the town suffered a terrible loss with the 
death of Selectman Arthur J. King on March 20, 1983, just as he 
was completing his first term of excellent service. The Trust 
Fund that he provided for the beautif ication of the town will 
serve as a fitting memorial to his contributions to Williamsburg. 

After the annual elections in April, the Board reorganized 
with Jeanne E. Hemenway, Chairman; Steve Berrien, Clerk; and Joseph 
A. Wilhelm III, Welfare Agent. 

Last year the town received a Community Development Block 
Grant from the state to be used as a low-interest loan to the 
Brassworks Associates for the rehabilitation of the historic 
Brassworks site. The work has now been virtually completed, and 
commercial and retail tenants are currently moving into the Brass- 
works. The town has established a Loan Reuse Committee to super- 
vise the revolving loan fund that is to be used to aid local 
businesses . 

This year the Board began a management program for town- 
owned woodlands. Bay State Forres try Service, acting as the town's 
agent, supervised a contract for the cutting of timber on the 
Meekins Lot on Gere Hill, from which the town has received 
approximately $40,000. The Board also participated in a co- 
operative fuel oil bid through the County Purchasing Agent and 
realized a considerable savings in heating town buildings. 

Highway Superintendent Harry Warner reports a relatively 
mild winter for fiscal 1983, with above-average temperatures and 
below-average storms and snow accumulations. In all there were 
18 storms: 11 snow storms (with a total accumulation of 58"); 
5 freezing rain storms, three of which lasted two days; and 2 
heavy rain storms with over 6" of rain, causing some drainage 
problems . 

During the summer, the entire length (3.8 miles) of the 
Ashfield Road was resealed. Throughout town there was the usual 
grading of dirt roads and other routine maintenance: sweeping, 
ditching, patching, replacing drainage pipes, guard rails and 
signs. 

Construction on the Nash Hill Road Project is 65% completed 
and should be finished the coming construction season. The 
Ashfield Road Erosion Project was completed. This involved 
cleaning out the river bed, installing drainage pipes and a basin, 
replacing material lost on the east side of the road and reseeding 
it. 

The Highway Department purchased a new ^-ton pickup and a 
new 8-yard diesel -powered dump truck. 



73 



Partly as a result of the sewer line, the town has the 
potential for considerable growth. With this also come potential 
problems — strains on our resources and services, loss of open 
spaces — that we must monitor carefully. A minor but persistent 
problem in town is dog control, owing largely to the lack of a 
dog officer. We urge the continued cooperation of our towns- 
people in observing the restraining order on dogs as well as in 
respecting all our by-laws and town ordinances. 

Early in the year tie town office was moved to the Haydenville 
Center School Building. A new safe was installed, and the drain- 
age problems in the building were (we hope) resolved. As a re- 
sult of investments made by the Town Treasurer, the town is 
about to get an Apple computer for the town office. The new 
office provides separate areas for meetings, for the Police 
Department, the Town Treasurer, and the Town Accountant. We 
wish to thank the volunteers from the Council on Aging who 
have made many improvements to the building. 

In August the Tax Collector, Mary Clark, resigned. After 
interviewing a number of able candidates, the Board chose Donald 
Baldwin to complete her term, and he has worked hard and well to 
master the position quickly. 

Our thanks to the Town Secretary and her assistant for hold- 
ing things together, and to all the town officials, departments, 
and committees whose efforts and cooperation make this such an 
enjoyable, harmonious environment to live and work in. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Jeanne E. Hemenway 

Steve Berrien 

Joseph A. Wilhelm III

FINANCE COMMITTEE ANNUAL REPORT 1983 

In the times of proposition 2^, the Finance Committee's 
duties have changed from recommending what it feels is in line 
with the towns needs, to trying to fit the requests for ex- 
penditures into the projected revenue, most of the time a dif- 
ficult task. The Finance Committee met 10 times in 1983 to 
review departmental budgets and town meeting articles and to hear 
requests and expend it's reserve fund. 

The Finance Committee changed it's leadership with the re- 
signation of Robert Harvey, member and chairman for many years. 
Thank you and good luck Bob! Robert McQueston was elected to 
replace him as chairman and James Halberstat was appointed to 
fill the vacancy. 

Sincerely, 

Roger Bisbee, Clerk 



BOARD OF ASSESSORS ANNUAL REPORT 1983 

The Board of Assessors are implementing the new property 
values compiled by Spencer - Fitts and completed by the Board 
of Assessors. 

This next year we plan to transfer all of our Real and Per- 
sonal Property data to the towns new computer.

BOARD OF WATER COMMISSIONERS ANNUAL REPORT 198 3 

During this Fiscal Year, the Board began the first of a 
series of improvements to the water system, looping the Village 
Hill Road/Avenue water service. This involves construction of 
a new line along the Ashfield Road from North St. to Village 
Hill Ave. and replacing all of the 4 inch diameter water main on 
North St., North Main St., Village Hill Rd. , Village Hill Ave. 
with 8 inch water main. The new construction phase is completed, 
the balance will be done in the Spring. The Board has been 
notified that a state matching grant of $23,425.00 has been a- 
warded for this project. No money has yet been seen. The next 
project will be to complete the metering of the town water ser- 
vices . 

Two timber cuts were completed this year and two more have 
been bid for next year. The revenue from the cuts is financing 
the bulk of the improvement projects. 

This has been a hard year on water hydrants, four were hit 
by cars. A construction mis-calculation at the Brassworks pro- 
ject dumped most of Haydenville • s water into the project ex- 
cavation in October. All repair costs were met by the Brassworks. 



From January 1, 1983 to January 1, 1984 there were 44 permits 
filed and a sum of $745.00 received and turned over to the Town 
Treasurer. The following is a breakdown:

COUNCIL ON AGING ANNUAL REPORT 198 3 

The final phase of the move from the lower floor of the 
Haydenville Center School to the first floor, made possible by 
the 1981 Discretionary Grant Funds from the Massachusetts De- 
partment of Elder Affairs, has been completed during the cur- 
rent year of 1983. The installation of new drapes and shades 
completes and compliments the Regional Meal Site and Drop-In- 
Center. This was the last step to be accomplished within the 
atmosphere which was so vitally needed. 

Our Activities Club very generously afforded us an op- 
portunity to purchase a Cable TV for the Drop-In-Center which 
adds to the pleasure of the participants. The TV has been 
placed on a shelf high enough for all to see and enjoy from 
any part of the room. 

We have made several sightseeing trips, theater trips to 
the Coachlight Theater in Connecticut as well as overnight trips. 
During the year we have Pot Luck lunches and once a month we 
have a "Luncheon Out" at the Whale Inn for a change. Our an- 
nual Christmas Party this year was a huge success with 136 
persons attending with a program following the dinner. Our 
other activities include a bowling group every Thursday and 
also we have Bingo once a week for those individuals over 60 
years of age who are classified as Senior Citizens. There is 
an attached wall screen enabling us to have slides and lectures 
as desired. 

1984 promises to be a forward moving year with activities 
continuing as mentioned along with new ventures yet to be 
suggested. There is in the offing plans for seeing the 1984 
World's Fair in Louisiana which many have already signed up for 
early reservations. (continued)

1983 has been an interesting year and we are indebted to 
those who have helped to make it so. For you who have not had 
an opportunity to see what has been accomplished it would be a 
pleasure to have you drop in. The doors are open daily from 
9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and the interest shown by the public is 
what compliments the efforts made. 

A special thank you goes out to George Hall for the untold 
hours of work he had done at the council. George, you are missed 
by all. 

We would like to express our appreciation and gratitude to 
the Town of Williamsburg and those individuals who have made it 
possible to bring this Regional Senior Center to complete 
fruition. Come in and share with us!

FIRE DEPARTMENT ANNUAL REPORT 1983 



In 1983 there were 43 fires, a smaller number than usual. 
There were no house fires involving a large loss. Nine were 
grass or woodland, eight auto accidents, six chimney, five 
structure, four vehicle, two appliance malfunction, one alarm 
malfunction, and eight miscellanious . 

A new fire truck built by FMC Corporation was delivered in 
the fall of 1983. It is housed in the South Main Street fire 
station in Haydenville. The truck is all we expected it to be, 
works very well, and should give Williamsburg excellent service 
for many years. In order to keep our eguipment current, we 
should be shopping for another new truck by 1988. 

The subject of a new fire station sometimes arises, par- 
ticularly among some firefighters. My opinion is that the town 
would not be better served by a single fire station, however 
some improvements could be made to our existing fire stations. 
The North Main Street Station, in Williamsburg, would be im- 
proved by a small addition for storage of material presently in 
the apparatus area. At the time a new roof on the station in 
Haydenville becomes necessary, the town should investigate re- 
placing the present flat roof with a sloping roof incorporating 
a training and meeting room for that company of firefighters. 

There is a continuous training program to work with our 
fire equipment. We have an active training program on a monthly 
basis with the C) esterf ield and Goshen Fire Departments. Also, 
we participate in the Hampshire County Fire Defense Association 
basic firefighting program. Currently we are making an extra 
effort to encourage all firefighters to participate in as much 
training as possible. People do not seem to have the time to 
give that we were used to in the past. 

There is a feeling among firefighting people that a great 
many woodburning stoves and furnaces are poorly installed. It 
has been Williamsburg's experience in the past that many fires 
with a wood stove origin could have been prevented. People 
using wood as fuel should become familiar with good practices 
for installing equipment and using wood fires for heat. One 
important guideline is that nothing combustable be within 36 
inches of a wood burning stove unless adaquate measures of 
protection are used. 

Smoke detectors are proven to save lives. 

Sincerely, 



Roger Bisbee

BOARD OF HEALTH ANNUAL REPORT 1983 



The Board of Health has again had a busy year. Dye testing 
for sewer hook-up has taken many hours of Board time. Sewer 
hook-up has been progressing but we have not yet acheived our 
goal of 100%. We will become more aggressive during 1984-85. 
We intend to use every means at our disposal to inforce re- 
quired connections. 

During the year we supervised and/or performed a routine 
number of animal inspections and restaurant inspections. The 
Board has sought, and received, professional assistance from 
the State relative to inspections. We are looking into the 
possibility of hiring an agent and establishing a regular cycle 
of store, processor and restaurant inspections. 

The Board hopes to have recycling bins at our transfer 
station late in the Spring. We further remind the citizenry 
that our Stump-dump is to be used for: trees, leaves, brush, 
garden materials and wood-products (free of glass) — NO LOUSEHOLD 
TRASH ALLOWED. We hope that people will be cognizant of proper 
disposal of refuse. We should sort before going to the dump. 
The less material placed in our compactor, the lower will be 
our cost of operating the transfer station. 

The Board continues the policy of meeting: Once a month — 
December through March, The last Wednesday and Twice a month — 
April through November, the 2nd and last Wednesday. All meetings 
at 8:00 p.m. 

Sincerely,

OLIVER SMITH WILL 



Under the provisions of the Oliver Smith Will, several 
townspeople listed in the following categories received benefits 
during this year: Six brides, $600.00; Two boys, $1,200.00; 
Two widows, $400.00. 

Youths working under an apprenticeship program may apply 
for benefits before the age of 19, but must serve until the age 
of 21. The sum of $500.00 will be placed in a bank until the 
youth reaches the age of 21. The one year's interest is paid 
to Smith Charities and this money is in turn given to the trades- 
man at the age of 22. Brides (first marriage only applying with- 
in 90 days after marriage) may qualify for a gift of $100.00. 
Nursing students may apply, within six months after entry into 
a nursing school, for a $300.00 gift upon graduating with a R.N. 
degree. Widows, with children under 18, who do not remarry and 
do remain within the Town may apply for $200.00 annually. 

Applications and information concerning benefits may be ob- 
tained from Raymond Heath, 5 Edwards Street, Haydenville, MA., 
01039.

WILLIAMSBURG CONSERVATION COMMISSION 
1983 ANNUAL REPORT 



To: Board of Selectmen 
Town Offices 
Haydenville, MA 01039 



The Conservation Commission holds monthly meetings on 
the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Town 
Offices. The Conservation Commission is empowered with the 
administering of General Law 131, Sect. 40 (Wetland Protection 
act) within the Town of Williamsburg. This act pertains to 
any activities within a wetland, floodplain, or within 100 
feet of a river or stream. No work should commence in any wet- 
land area without a prior filing of a Notice of Intent with this 
commission. 

During 1983, the Commission held two advertised public 
hearings, both dealing with the renovation at the Brassworks in 
Haydenville. An Order of Conditions were handed down to the 
developers to protect the river and all downstream areas from 
any damage from dam repairs, dredging, or installation of 
hydro equipment in the dam. The Order of Conditions extended 
to parking lot plans and drainage into the Mill River. 

The Commission also inspected several sites in the town 
where work was to be done within the 100 foot buffer zone of 
the river. Letters were sent to the property owners where 
necessary to advise them of the Wetland Regulations. 

On April 1, 1983, the New Wetland Regulations went into 
effect and two members of the Commission attended a workshop 
to become more familiar with the extent of the changes. The 
new Regulations are more specific than the previous ones re- 
garding the areas to be protected by the Act. 

The Commission has copies of the Wetland Regulations and 
will make the available to interested town residents upon re- 
quest.

POLICE DEPARTMENT REPORT 



To the Board of Selectmen: 



The Chief of Police respectfully submits the following 
report for the Police Department for the year ending December 
31, 1983. 

During the past year the Police Department moved into 
office space at the Haydenville Town Office Building. All 
records are now consolidated in one location which makes for 
a more efficient operation of the department. 

In October three new officers were appointed to the de- 
partment by the selectmen. The department now numbers 9 police 
officers and 2 policewomen. 

At the Special Town Meeting held in November, $8,500.00 
was appropriated for the purchase of new radio equipment for 
the department which will enable the officers to have a much 
needed and improved communications with base stations. 

Three officers completed a 15 week Criminal Justice 
Course for Reserve/Intermittent Police Officers. Williamsburg's 
officers achieved the highest Academic and Fire Arms scores 
overall . 

During the 1983 calendar year the department issued 216 
citations. 157 citations were issued for speeding on Route 9 
and Town roads. 41 accidents were investigated and 20 arrests 
were made. 

18 F.I.D. Cards were issued during the year and 39 
License to Carry Firearms Permits were issued. 18 Insurance 
Report requests were mailed. 

The total number of man hours worked were 2,453.5 hours.

H AYDENVI LLE LIBRARY REPORT, 1983 



The Haydenville Library has enjoyed a good year, with 
several projects successfully completed. 

During the summer the library store room was cleared of 
over 500 discarded books, which had accumulated over the 
years . 

In October the slate roof of the library was repaired, 
and worn gutters replaced. 

Money received from the Massachusetts Arts Lottery was 
used by Diane Potter for decorative stenciling around the 
library fireplace. 

Our book budget was implemented with money obtained from 
the town dog licenses, and we were able to purchase an ex- 
cellent selection of best sellers and fine children's books. 

Story hours and craft sessions were held for the various 
holidays by Jacqueline Quirk, Lynn Woofenden, and Diane Potter. 
These were well attended. 

The book circulation increased considerably this year.

WILLIAMSBURG RECREATION COMMISSION 
ANNUAL REPORT 198 3 - 1984 



The recreational programs for 1983 through the winter of 
1984 were, and are, being enjoyed by town residents. The break- 
down is as follows: Summer Programs -- Girls Softball, Adult 
Softball, Youth League, Hilltown, Babe Ruth and the local Legion 
Team. Fall Programs -- Youth League Soccer, and a Mixed Doubles 
Tennis Tournament. Winter 1984 Programs — (currently running) 
2 Men's Basketball Leagues; Girls Basketball; Boys Basketball, 
Junior High Basketball; Adult Volleyball, Aerobics, Gym Tennis, 
Rollerskating (Interskate 91), and Swimming. Bowling and Cross- 
country Skiing are tentatively scheduled. With the hope of reach- 
ing more people, we also published a winter newsletter. 

Ames Field continues to be scheduled to capacity throughout 
the sof tball/baseball season and throughout the year. The new 
bleachers for the field were especially appreciated by those 
faithful fans (Mom and Dad and all who love to watch ball) who 
now have a place to sit. Congratulations Burgy Softball for your 
third place trophy last summer. Pipes were layed at the small, 
youth league diamond to help alleviate flooding. Mowing and 
general maintenance were done per usual. And last, but not least, 
the Recreation Commission would like to give a special thanks to 
the Legion for their work on the large diamond, and to Sam Kellogg 
and his crew for their invaluable assistance in laying the pipes 
for our future building at Ames Field. 

The tennis courts were in greater use this year than ever 
before, and are in use three seasons of the year. Mini-courses 
were given in the spring. Summer Recreation used them in the 
summer. And a mixed doubles tennis tournament was given in the 
fall. We would also like to add that preparations have been made 
to reerect the backboard. Pipes were sunk and the board painted. 
When the weather permits, it will be done. 

While attempting to entice many little locals to brave 
sub-zero temperatures and try their skating skills with our rink 
at Ames Field, we noticed that some of the braver parents showed 
up also. We feel very lucky to have such a nice field. 

The Summer Recreation Program was again offered last summer 
and was enjoyed by many children — especially, as always, on 
Look Park days. 

The Commission accepted the resignation of Lee Satterfield 
(April) and Warren White (August) with regret. Each gave 
generously both their time and energy. Thank you Lee and Warren. 
With one seat already vacant, Pam Holt, Mary Clark, and Steve 
Rozewenc were temporarily appointed to fill the vacancies. 

And finally, the Commission would like to thank all those who 
helped make the programs possibles The Town; the School Committee 



87 



and Dot Ladd for making the gym available (we have at least 
one program a day there); those who provided transportation 
or chaperoned; those who participated and supported our pro- 
grams; and a special thanks to those people who gave their 
time and energy to coach a team, or run a program. Thank 
you all for your support and help in making Williamsburg a 
better place in shich to live and grow.

PLANNING BOARD ANNUAL REPORT 198 3 



Larry Flaccus has continued to represent the Board in the 
town's contacts with the Brassworks Associates. As the project 
nears completion, Larry deserves residents' thanks for his time- 
consuming efforts to maximize benefits to the town from the 
revi talization of the Brassworks. 

Other significant concerns coming before the Board included 
various proposals for development of the hill overlooking 
Haydenville Center; resolution of house numbering problems 
(largely stymied by a lack of data and of person-hours in which 
to collect it); questions raised by the arrival and likely 
proliferation of condominiums in town; questions about siting 
and financing of housing for the elderly; and a notable upturn 
in sales of building lots, showing that there is a strong market 
for new single-family home sites, with all that that implies for 
schools and other services. 

The Board has a list of more than two dozen tasks and study 
topics which should ideally be addressed soon. At year-end, 
members were considering how to allocate resources and priority 
to subjects ranging from sign regulations to agricultural-land 
retention; from subdivision regulations to street names and 
hazardous-waste control; from groundwater protection and town 
administrative needs to public information and the local effects 
of acid rain. 

Year-end discussion also focused on how to accomplish long- 
delayed tasks like definitive house numbering without diverting 
all the Board's energy from more forward-looking projects. We 
hope to manage this in 1984. 

The Planning Board's major accomplishment in 1983 may 
simply have been paying greater attention to many different kinds 
of ongoing changes which affect the town's residents, and which 
must be anticipated if residents are to be able to measure, 
influence or control them effectively. 

Tina Hall was unable to attend meetings for much of the 
fall, and resigned from the Board at the end of the year. We 
will miss her energetic and thoughtful participation. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Eric W. Weber, Chairman

During 1983, the on-going impact of "Proposition 2V remained 
the District's greatest concern. The fiscal situation in 
Southampton resulted in a vote to reduce its Regional assessment 
appropriation for the second consecutive year. Inasmuch as the 
other four member towns had approved their proportionate shares 
as requested by the District, the School Committee felt compelled 
to seek a resolution of the problem through the judicial system. 
In the meanwhile, the Region has made up the deficit by borrowing 
funds based upon the assumption that Southampton would eventually 
meet its full assessment obligations. 

Obviously, such a situation cannot continue much longer and 
we look for the courts to render a decision early in 1984. The 
School Committee feels that its case is strong but it is not 
overlooking the possibility that a finding against the Region 
might be made. Should such a finding be the case and if there is 
no substantial increase in state aid, the Committee will have to 
consider taking immediate steps to reduce annual spending by up 
to $200,000. Such a reduction would have far reaching effects 
upon the school f s ability to provide adequate, quality educational 
programs . 

Up until recently, the state regulations governing the 
operation of school lunch programs prohibited schools from making 
a profit. While we are still required to offer "Type A" lunches 
for students who wish to purchase meals, we are now permitted to 
offer a wide variety of dishes on an "a la carte" basis. These 



91 

items are prepared and offered to students with the specific 
intention of producing a profit. As a result, the school cafeteria 
was able to generate $10,000 which was used to offset a large 
measure of its operational expenses which were previously funded 
through the general school budget. 

Recognizing the advisability of minimizing the fiscal impact 
upon a member town having a sharp increase in its assessment per- 
centage because of shifting enrollment figures, the Committee 
has studied the problem thoroughly and plans to initiate appropriate 
action in 1984. Under the plan as presently proposed, a town with 
a five (5) percent increase in Regional students in one (1) 
given year (for instance), would have its assessment percentage 
increased by only one (1) percent during each of five (5) years. 
Given the constraints of "Proposition 2V» the advantages are 
obvious . 

Late in the year the State Board of Education recommended 
to the Joint Committee on Education that state funds be appropriated 
to support a state-wide testing program to take effect in 1985. 
The most significant aspects of such a program would be as follows: 

1 . That the current policy for the Basic Skills Improvement 
Program shall remain unchanged at the elementary level. 

2. That a state-developed, state-managed and state-scored 
9th grade Basic Skills Improvement Test be instituted 
and that state standards or norms be established. 

3. That a Massachusetts Assessment of Educational Progress 
Program be established which will identify strengths 
and weaknesses in each school's instructional program. 



(This program would be in addition to the Basic Skills 
Improvement Program which is used currently to identify 
individual students in need of help in reading, writing, 
arithmatic and listening. ) 
If the Board of Education acts favorably on these recommen- 
dations, and if the legislature appropriates the funding for 
schools to institute such a program, it will mean a major change 
in policy relative tc the state's role in fulfilling its re- 
sponsibility for educating the youth of the Commonwealth. Up to 
now, each school district was permitted to establish its own 
curriculum (for the most part) and to set its own standards for 
minimum achievement. 

State-wide standards are currently being used in several 
areas of the nation and although sucha policy in Massachusetts 
would not have any immediate impact upon those schools (including 
ours) with rather high minimum standards already in place, these 
long-range concerns must be considered: 

1 . Schools will begin to tailor their curricula so as to 
improve their standings. In some cases it may mean 
"teaching to the test" and very little else. To main- 
tain or improve our own relative standing, we will 
eventually find it difficult not to emphasize certain 
subject areas at the expense of others not included in 
the testing program. Thus, another case of local control 
being eroded away. 

2. The ranking of schools state-wide could very easily 
lead to the development of new priorities in the dis- 
tribution of school aid funding from the Commonwealth. 



93 

Equalizing of educational opportunities for all children 
across the state has long been a goal of the Department 
of Education - and so it should. 

A new and more representative school aid formula without 
a substantial increase in state funding at the same time, 
however, will only add to the present problems created 
by "Proposition 2^".

Based upon pupil enrollment data recorded as of each October 
1st, six (6) cooperating school systems share the costs of employing 
a common superintendent of schools and a common central administrative 
office staff. The following statistics show how the responsibility 
for these costs has varied over a three (3) year period.

Elementary school enrollments during the 1960's averaged 
310 and dropped to 257 during the 1970's. Thus far into the 
1980's, enrollments have averaged 185! These declining enroll- 
ments, along with the pressures of "Proposition 2%" , necessitated 
the closing of the James School at the end of the 1981-1982 
academic year and the subsequent assignment of all classes to 
the Dunphy School. 

Assuming that the percentage of young families in Williamsburg 
will remain constant during the next several years, it is an- 
ticipated that student enrollments will be maintained at these 
present levels or increase only slightly during the remainder 
of this decade. Should there be a sudden or unexpected growth 
in the number of residents with young children, however, the 
capacity of the Dunphy School might soon be surpassed. 

With these factors in mind, the School Committee has begun 
to address the question as to the eventual use of the presently 
empty James School. Preliminary meetings have been held with the 
Planning Board and the Council on Aging but a great deal more 
of public input is needed before any definitive action should 
be taken. In the meanwhile, the James School will remain under 
the jurisdiction of the School Department. 



96 

It has been several years since any significant amount of 
major maintenance has been undertaken at the Dunphy School. The 
Committee is currently considering the use of an architect to 
prepare estimates and specifications for the replacement of the 
flat roofed area of the school, modification of the classroom 
heating units and insulation of the structure in general along 
with the windows in particular. It is intended that the Committee 
will have a comprehensive recommendation which will be presented 
for action at the 1984 annual town meeting. 

In response to the concerns expressed by a group of citizens, 
the Committee engaged the services of Dr. Clement A. Seldin to 
conduct a quantitative evaluation of Williamsburg's elementary 
school system. Upon receipt of his report, it will be studied 
in great detail in order to determine what actions should be 
taken relative to all recommendations contained therein. It is 
expected that this type of an "outside" evaluation will enhance 
all of our continuing efforts to improve the educational programs, 
procedures and policies at the Dunphy School. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Richard E. Dragon 

Acting Superintendent of Schools

(A) COMPOSITION 

The powers and duties of the Regional School District 
shall be vested in and exercised by a regional district 
school committee, hereinafter sometimes referred to as 
the Committee. Each member Town shall be entitled

for initial implementation of this provision, the 1980 
Federal Census shall be used to determine said popula- 
tion. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Town shall ever have 
less than one (1) elected representative. In the e- 
vent that any Town shall have only one (1 ) elected 
member, it will be permitted to have one additional 
non voting member, to assist the regularly elected 
member in his duties. Said nonvoting member shall be 
elected or appointed as each member Town shall deter- 
mine. 

Each elected or appointed member in office on the School 
Committee at the time of adoption of this amendment 
shall be permitted to complete his/her term of office. 
Elected members will be those elected at annual town 
elections. Members shall serve until their respective 
successors are elected and qualified.

town, the Selectmen acting alone) acting jointly, shall 
appoint a member to serve until the next annual town 
election, at which election a successor shall be elected 
to serve out the unexpired term, if any.

by striking out the first sentence and substitute as follows:

After the election and qualification of its members, the 
Committee shall annually organize and choose by ballot a 
chairperson from its own membership. Change 1(F) to 1(C) 
in the last sentence of this section. Strike out Section 
1(D) as follows: 

1(D) TERMS OF OFFICE 

In every year in which the term of office of an elected 
member expires, the member town involved shall, at its

term of three (3) years. No member of a local school 
committee may serve on the Regional School Committee

For the purposes of determining the "Determined Average 5-year

the town was not a member town as of October 1 of that year 
shall be the applicable enrollment in any of the Grades 
5 through 12 pupils residing in such town and receiving 
education at such town's expense on October of that year. 
The ratios calculated for each member town on each October 1 
shall be used to determine the share of the operating and 
capital expenses to be assessed to that member town for the 
following school year. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for the 
fiscal year 1985, no member town's assessment shall either
